So I know in movies people usually change into some cute outfit for the exit from the reception, but I don't know if that's a thing everyone actually does. My mother (who admittedly has not been a good source of info at any point in this process) says that that would be weird and I should just wear my dress for the exit. I'm not super inclined to change outfits -- I'd love to wear my dress as long as possible, plus we are 1.5 weeks out and going out to buy a new outfit is not something I need on my to-do list. But now I'm starting to envision walking into our hotel lobby in my big, poofy wedding dress and wondering if that's weird. The hotel is probably a 30-40 minute drive from the venue.
Did anyone NOT change their wedding dress after the reception?
